Tanneries

Our tanneries have been hand-picked to ensure fair wages and healthy work environments are provided for all employees. We frequently visit the tanneries to see how the environmental impacts and the health and safety of the workers are prioritised. The factories we work with are LWG certified, meaning that they adhere to the latest environmental standards for sustainable eco-leather.

Shee Shen Leather Pvt. Ltd.

Shee Sen is a certified leather tannery located in the Kolkata leather complex. We have had a relationship with them since 2016, but at the time we didn’t need an additional partner as we were already working with Sheong Shi tannery. We stopped working with Sheong Shi Tannery unfortunately due to closure, and officially partnered with Shee Sen who could seamlessly take over operations in 2021.

Shee Sen is Leather Working Group (LWG) certified and Gold Rated, which means that they have obtained the highest possible scored on important environmental topics such as water and waste management, as well as energy use and emissions.

Conceria Nuova Grenoble

Our second tannery is located in Tuscany, Italy. We started working with them in 2016, when we were in need of high quality hides, on a much larger scale. Luckily, we found the Genuine Italian Vegetable Tanned Leather Consortium, a consortium of tanneries with a shared passion for vegetable-tanned leather, high production standards and respect for the environment. Working with a second tannery allows us to smoothly navigate challenges such as production delays and shipping costs.

Founded in 1994 by a small group of Tuscan tanners, today there are more than 20 associated tanneries. In the Tuscan leather district vegetable-tanned leather is still produced following the traditional methods: turning raw hides into durable leather takes time and patience, and the skillful combination of technology and experience.

One of the associated tanneries is Conceria Nuova Grenoble. This family-run tannery, with its state-of-the-art articles, was born in 1977 and it is synonymous for respect for tradition and safeguard of the environment.

Just as all the other tanneries of the Consortium, Concercia Nuova Grenoble uses purification and waste management systems that recover, reuse and recycle production substances.

Thanks to the qualities of the natural oils used in the tanning process, the leathers always maintain specific characteristics of beauty, brilliance, softness, and longevity.
